  1. Was the Listening to shard cast, They seem to think that the entire aether's system is getting a rework and that entire aethers will be removed, Yet I see nothing to suggest this. Brandon Sanderson himself has said that the system Is one of the few things that work in the modern cosmere. More importantly I don't see how Any of the Aethers wouldn't fit in the modern cosmere. What are your guys's thoughts.
  2. It's time we talk about aethers, the last big cosmere magic system! Or is this actually an MCU podcast? A Pinnochio podcast? Maybe it's an ecology and physics podcast. Surprise, it's red spikes all the way down. This episode is both very on the rails and also totally not. Spoilers for Lost Metal and Tress of the Emerald Sea. This episode we have Eric (Chaos), David (Windrunner on the forums), Evgeni (Argent), Ala (Rasarr), and Verónica (Cheyenne Sedai)!

  19. We got a ton of new stuff in Rhythm of War on the Oathpact, Desolations, and the Heralds and how that all works. So much so that we had to split this episode in two! So today we're talking about about the Oathpact and Desolations, as well as the Everstorm and Braize! Next episode we will delve into the Heralds. This episode we have Eric (Chaos), Ian (Weiry), David (Windrunner), Grace (thegatorgirl), and Evgeni (Argent)! No Stormlight 5 prologue or secret project spoilers in this episode. We actually did this episode (which we also had to split in two) in 2018, after Oathbringer came out.

  20. The final Mistborn Era 2 book, The Lost metal, comes out November, and there's still so much to discuss on the previous book, The Bands of Mourning. Today, we are talking about the Southern Scadrians: their history, how they survived, their culture and religion, and then we discuss in depth the Sovereign's temple and the Bands themselves. This episode we have Eric (Chaos), Evgeni (Argent), Joshua (jofwu), Marvin (Paleo), and Payden (Otto Didact)!
